Outlander Road Trip

Outlander Day Trip

Lallybroch, Castle Leoch, Fort William & Abbey of Ste. Anne de Beaupré

I recently had a fantastic day visiting four Scottish castles used during the filming of Outlander Series One:

Midhope Castle – Lallybroch – Jamie’s family home. (Top left photograph)
The castle is owned by Hopetoun Estates and is on private land. Contact the estate office to arrange a visit.

Doune Castle – Castle Leoch – Home of the Clan MacKenzie and hotbed of intrigue, conspiracy and deception. (Top right photograph)
The castle is owned by Historic Scotland and is open to the public all year round.

Blackness Castle – Fort William – ‘Black Jack’ Randall’s headquarters. (bottom left photograph)
The castle is owned by Historic Scotland and is open to the public all year round.

Aberdour Castle – Abbey of Ste. Anne de Beaupré – Jamie was taken here following his escape from Wentworth Prison. (Bottom right photograph)
The castle is owned by Historic Scotland and is open to the public all year round.

Doune Castle - Claire & Murtagh

Claire and Murtagh made a surprise visit to Castle Leoch during the visit!

More photographs of my Outlander Road Trip can be found on Borders Journeys Facebook.

I have also recently visited Preston Mill used during Series One Episode 12 – Lallybroch  and Glencorse Old Kirk where Jamie and Claire were married during Series One Episode 7 – The Wedding.

If you would like me to create a private Outlander themed tour visiting attractions associated with the show for you, I will be happy to offer you my advice and plan the tour around your requirements. I recognise that for many of you this may be a once in a lifetime opportunity and my emphasis is upon making your time in Scotland an experience that you’ll always remember.
